Donny van de Beek gives opinion on Manchester United’s signings

Donny van der Beek has revealed his thoughts on Manchester United’s new signing.

The Dutch midfielder was loaned out to Everton for the second half of last season and thrived under Erik Ten Hag before moving to England.

Despite high hopes for the versatile player who caught the eye of Real Madrid, the £35m player has struggled to establish himself in United’s squad.

Training under the direction of four different managers [including Michael Carrick’s brief spell as caretaker]Van de Beek has been overlooked as a top midfield role, in favor of Bruno Fernandez Fred and Scott McTominay.

With United signing world-class midfielders Christian Eriksen and Casemiro this summer, his chances of success may now be slimmer.

van der beek Interviewed by the club’s internal magazine, joint reviewabout the new signature, said:

“As a player, I already know them.

“Some [them] I played with Christian – I played with Christian [Eriksen]also against Casemiro with Ajax.litchi [Lisandro Martínez]I play with him.

“So I know what they are capable of, they are very good players, so they will definitely help us.

“They are good people, but they are also team players. I think it is important. As people, they’re a perfect fit for the players we have.

Van de Beek pointed to the “strong mentality” that was overlooked at Manchester United and therefore pursued by ten Haig.

Moreover, his relationship with Martinez could help the Argentina international fit in the dressing room more easily.

Van de Beek was referring to the quality of Eriksen and Casemiro – two players who made the Dutchman’s career more difficult.

Although he came across as rather tame and neutral in this interview, it can be expected that Van de Beek will need to significantly improve his competitive dynamics to replace Eriksen, McTominay and Fernandes in the starting line-up. That’s not even including the huge hurdle of Casemiro, who is yet to make his Premier League debut.

The next four months (until the January transfer window) will be crucial for Van de Beek’s career at Manchester United. Playing under a familiar manager, he must strive to be one of those ‘really good team players’.
